RE: game development layout question

For auto racing tracks, you have a few basic designs.  NASCAR (the least
interesting) tends to run in ovals with the longer sides straightened out
and the turns always left.  Indy/Kart, Formula One cars run on different
shaped tracks, they are mostly ovals but have some other turns and sometimes
have a boomerang bend.  Grande Prix are run through streets, mountain roads
and in the country side, they can have fairly interesting twists and turns
and, in my opinion, are the most interesting races as they are hard to
predict.  Sports car class races can be run on any of the above.
 
[Because Ted Henter was a professional motorcycle racer before his accident
and now keeps up on Formula One, Grande Prix and the sports cars, I get the
highlights a few times a month when we have lunch together.]

I just want a basic track, that has turns on it etc. I also want other cars
on it. Sorry, I'm not really sure what you want in terms of more
information.
Thanks,

I can answer that Ty, but for a good answer you will need to feed info this
way due to different types and styles  of racing and tracks, what are you
thinking of, 
 
for any type of mapping, I think your best way to work is with "units"
weather there squares or octagons or pentagons,  if you use some sort of
measuring unit it will make things a whole lot easier.   squares would be
simplest, but also limiting in some kinds of designs.

Hello list,
I've got a question.
I'm thinking of writing a game in c++.
I want to find a way to make the board and map.
I thought about using an array, but then that would require that all objects
are the same...
Any ideas?
Also, how are race tracks built?
I want to do a bit of racing in the game, just not sure how to lay those
out.
 
Thanks,
Tyler Littlefield.
